Retroactive Pass/No Pass Requests

De Anza has extended the deadlines for requesting Pass/No Pass retroactively for certain quarters during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • You can request Pass/No Pass retroactively for classes taken in
    • Winter or spring of 2022
    • Winter, spring, summer or fall of 2021
    • Winter, spring, summer or fall of 2020
  • Before choosing Pass/No Pass, there are some important things you should consider: For example, some transfer universities may not accept Pass grades for certain requirements. It's a good idea to meet with a counselor to discuss this and other options before selecting Pass/No Pass.
  • To learn more about these important considerations and how to submit a request, visit our Pass/No Pass webpage.
